*Terms & Condition
With CFD trading you speculate on whether the price of a share, or the value of an index, currency or other financial assets will go up or down. This gives you the opportunity to potentially trade on both rising and falling markets, making a profit if you’re right, or a loss if you’re wrong.
What makes CFD trading really attractive is that you don’t have the same major financial outlay that you would have if you actually bought the financial asset you’re speculating on. The price you pay depends on the margin, which is generally a fraction of the value of the asset.
At Spread Co we like to offer competitive margins for CFDs, starting at just 3.33% for forex and 20% for major equities. Coupled with 0% financing on short index positions, it makes Spread Co hard to beat.
Explaining what CFD trading is?
To trade CFDs, you’ll first need to set up a CFD trading account. You can do so in a matter of minutes, and once approved, you can then fund your account and start trading using an online trading platform. This is where you’ll see all the available markets, as well as view the prices for each contract.
We set prices based on the underlying market. For most markets, you are given a ‘buy’ and ‘sell’ price either side of the underlying market price. For equities, you will also need to pay a commission charge on top of this. You can take a position on a market going up
